The scene at 5:00pm was so mellow on Shakedown, no nirtous, and folks seemed in good spirts.I knew attendance would be low but when I went in early...I was like wow. It filled up once the show started right at 7:12pm.
The HC Sunshine> Row Jimmy was incredible. Phil was a monster and the entire band was dialed in.
I can not stress how intense the jam in HC Sunshine was and then right into a poetic Row Jimmy. What a start. This version featured a great piano solo from Jeff and was spot on.
Thought we were gonna get BT Wind, oh one night off, next but the first of two Bobby curve balls soon followed. Big Bad Blues. It was good and afforded me a run to the can.
Magnolia Mountian was sweet and I enjoyed it.Energy and focus of the crowd waned somewhat. Many Ratdog fans on this night.
I could not belive we Minglewood, time out for Bobby after this one. He botched up the "T for Texas' verse which was a hoot.
Dire Wolf through Cosmic was very good, with Phil stretching his arm out as a loopy airplane, although not nearly intense as the first two songs.
Set two started off with a rocking Passenger with Phil going deep. He was sick the entire second set.
Here Comes the Sun was nice and they played it out quite well and the jam with the melody at the end was excetional.John had an almost accoustic tone on his guitar and the crowd loved it.
I got my cherry popped with No More Do I, is that a Hunter tune? It was quite good.
The next sequence was just epic. A deep Estimated as the launch pad and away we went, it was just what I needed for my last show of the year with Furthur.
The band laid it down big time.
A nice long slinky jam with no real hints of where it might go they just flowed with it The tranistion into Crypitcal was perfect and very fluid.
Phil stepped up to the mic with conviction and delivered a ery strong performance. The jam out of it was clear where we we going and it was great to see the Other One reunited with it. The wave just swelled and teh band was fierce and things got intense fast.
The build up into the Other one was great and then a text booking reading by Bob and the band.
The jam into the second verse was intense and Phil, OMG was just dropping power chords all over the place.
The place was coming around then to be brought down by the lilting resuring notes of the return to Crypitcal but his fate already sealed it was spot on.
Then Bobby started strumming those familar chords and John, Phil, Joe, and Jeff attacked this version. Wow it was wild and the John's solo was sick and then Jeff just wailed on teh B3.
Once again Phil was the man and he just slammed his hammer down on that stage.
I knew what was coming next and it was nice to have an old familar pairing have us dancing on air.
This version was everything you wanted it to be, compared to the one I saw the previous summer in Herkimer, they was the bonefide reading.
The band was sweet with conviction and John solos and singing was beautiful.
"It seems like all this life was just a dream...Stella Blue"
that line always brrings tears to my eyes and on this night it just touched my soul.
A majestic ending solo and wow.
The sound was huge and this Stella was maybe the best one this band has played.
To come out of a dream into the reasuring chords of an uptempo UJB was a perfect pairing and as Mike described above this verison was stellar. The audience right with the band on the vocals and Jeff and Sunshine really did well here too.
The jam at the end was just massive and Phil was so intense. I was in awe and in ectasy.
Phil gave us a heartfelt rap with the lights shining on the audience as Phil wanted to see us all tonight and he was all smiles.
NFA was perfect and the Knick just rocked it out with the band. I knew were were getting the Brokedown as Bobby and the band really gave a nice vocal spat with the audience at the end and then an endearing and brilliant Brokedown, only one of the tour so far, Bob did hesistated on the start of third verse,the audience helped him get through it and a minor blemmish as this one was just pure gold.
" Going home, going home
By the waterside I will rest my bones
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul"
Well done Furthur and Albany.
